Roman Day!

Helena TROLLEY (helena) on: Beech Class Blog

Wow! What an interesting and exciting day it has been! Today the Romans came to Asquith as a grand finale to our topic work. We learnt about some of the key figures during the early years of the Roman invasion of Britain as well as the life of a Roman soldier.

This afternoon the children were transported back in time and became Roman soldiers and Celts, re-enacting a skirmish between the Romans and people living in Britain at the time of the Roman invasion. The children threw themselves into this activity and it looked as though they had a great time.

Pictures to follow.
